Description

About the book – please use the hashtag #DisabilityRightsUON to follow this talk.

Come along to hear a talk from the Author of 'Disability Rights and Advocacy Online: Voice, Empowerment and Global Community'.

In just a few short years, Internet-based media have revolutionized disability rights advocacy. At a time of crisis, online media fostered a renewed sense of unity in the traditionally fragmented disability community, starting a process that is continuing today as organizers try to mobilize Americans with disabilities in the wake of Donald Trump’s election. New digitally native organizations have emerged, which challenged traditional ways of thinking about disability advocacy. Young disabled bloggers have become the new faces of the disability movement. In this talk, Filippo Trevisan will review the changes, challenges, and opportunities that led to these transformations, discussing their significance for the disability community and other progressive movements that seek to spark social change.
